Scale Back Alabama – Register Now

Scale Back Alabama, the free statewide weight-loss contest that kicks off every January, has enjoyed tremendous support of hospitals since its inception in 2007. Although our state has made some progress, with 1.35 million pounds lost by Scale Back Alabama participants over 11 years, Alabama remains third in the nation in terms of adult obesity with a rate of 35.7 percent.

Scale Back Alabama is sponsored by AlaHA, ADPH and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama, and this 9-week statewide contest would not be possible without help from hundreds of weigh-in/out site coordinators. Please consider designating a coordinator to run a Scale Back Alabama program in your community, both for the general public and your employees.
